This cookware features a heat-conducting aluminum core throughout, surrounding your food with an even temperature to cook it from all sides simultaneously, from the bottom up, the sides in, and when the cover is on, from the top down for greater efficiency. The result is faster food preparation - and better tasting meals.

Cutco's professional quality cookware is designed to let you prepare all your favorite recipes with only a minimal amount of water or oil - liquid that can steal away both flavor and nutrition. This low-moisture approach retains food nutrients, enhances flavor and appearance, and cuts cooking time dramatically. So whether it's a quick breakfast, or a five-course holiday feast, you'll serve your family and friends delicious, healthy meals - without spending all day in the kitchen.
With low-moisture cooking, foods cook best when they fill or nearly fill the pot or pan. Be sure to use the proper Perfect-Fit lid.
Moist fruits and vegetables contain ample natural moisture. Simply rinse and drain them before cooking. The water remaining on the food should be sufficient. Only add water or liquid if the food does not contain enough moisture of its own. Most meats can be cooked in their own natural juices, but may require a small amount of oil for braising. Of course, water is necessary for preparing soups, dry cereals, rice, pasta or fruits and vegetables when steaming.
Because low-moisture cooking brings out the natural flavors of food, you can reduce the amount of seasoning and salt you add - another healthy benefit.
High heat and boiling destroys vitamins and nutrients. The special 5-ply construction of Cutco Cookware distributes heat evenly on all sides of your food, so you can cook at lower temperatures. Start cooking over medium heat until food begins to steam, then reduce temperature to low for the remainder of the cooking time.
Low-moisture cooking depends on using the natural moisture in food. Using a cover holds this moisture in. There are some exceptions to this rule, including preparing foods that require constant stirring such as gravies and puddings, boiling eggs and pan frying certain meats, fish and chicken.
Lifting the lid allows heat, steam and nutrients to escape. It interrupts the self-basting action of low-moisture cooking and lengthens cooking time by requiring the contents to re-heat. Loss of moisture through escaped steam may also result in burned food.
